What are PDO Thread Lifts?
At Renuvia Medical Center, Dr. Arthur Schlyer and his skilled aesthetic team perform innovative polydioxanone (PDO) MEDiTHREAD treatments as a minimally invasive alternative to a traditional facelift, neck lift, or body lift. With the ability to address areas of mild to moderate aging, a thread lift procedure with MEDiTHREAD can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even cellulite on the face, neck, and body. Using surgical-grade PDO threads, a MEDiTHREAD thread lift is performed by inserting the threads into the desired area and carefully tugging them in the necessary position to allow for a lifted outcome. The threads then help to increase the production of collagen and elastin, as well as draw hyaluronic acid to the area for naturally strengthened, more youthful skin. The threads are then dissolved by the body, requiring no second appointment for removal. If you are desiring to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without the need for surgery, you may be an ideal candidate for a thread lift procedure within our New Port Richey, FL facility. Contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation.

- Upper and lower cheeks

Many patients at our facility may also desire to accompany their thread lift procedure with additional nonsurgical treatments, such as BOTOX® or dermal fillers. During your consultation, Dr. Schlyer and his team can discuss your various options and create a personalized treatment plan.

"When you are looking for getting your youth back, Dr. Schlyer has all the tools available to get you to a beautiful you again. I am so glad I found Dr. Schlyer as he is the best in his field. All my life I had my 11s between my eyebrows. Dr. Schlyer got that taken care of for me and I am amazed with the result! He not only took care of my 11s, but also smoothed out my forehead, and now I do not look angry any longer. He also noted that I could use some fillers to help with my smile lines. I did not even know that was an option! I cannot wait to get that done and look 10 to 15 years younger. Thank you Dr. Schlyer! Annie G"- A.G. / Google / Nov 30, 2020

What Can I Expect During a Thread Lift?
During your initial consultation, our aesthetic team will discuss your desired treatment outcome in order to curate a personalized procedure plan that best fits your needs. Before the start of your treatment, a local anesthetic may be administered to allow for a more comfortable procedure. Then, the treatment areas will be carefully marked to identify where the threads will enter and exit the skin. In order to insert the threads, a very fine needle with the threads will be carefully pulled to create a lifted result. After your thread lift treatment, you could start to notice some results right away, but optimal results may take around 2 – 3 months to appear. Complete recovery from your thread lift procedure can take around a couple of days to make sure any soreness or redness has diminished. Results can typically last for a year or more, and touch-up procedures can be performed to help maintain your results.
